JetPack WordPress Plugin Insanity

One of the tools that my bloggers love here at Geek News Central is a plugin called “After The Deadline” after the recent update to WordPress it is now offered only as part of the WordPress JetPack plugin. I had not installed JetPack before and when I did I just about fell out of my chair of all the features they have forced us to have with this bundle.

All I wanted was to update “After The Deadline” and now I had to run this bloated JetPack plugin. Sorry, if I cannot install just the plugina I want to use, I am not going to be forced into running JetPack. Some bloggers are likely very happy with many of the features of JetPack but I had no desire for my website to be over-run by the damn thing.

If this is a sign of more things to come then I shudder to think what I may be forced into by the WordPress team in the future. “I VOTE NO FOR BUNDLING PLUGINS IN JETPACK”

    It isn’t obvious, but you can disable almost all of the plugin choices. If you click “Learn More” most of them will give a “Disable” button.
